Summer Intensive

Posted · Add Comment

We are very excited to announce that we will be presenting our Summer Intensive again in 2018. The Summer Intensive is a week long course designed to give existing drummers and percussionists the opportunity to experience what it is like to play in a professional ensemble such as D².

This course is a highly focused developmental program which will help attendees take their rudimental chops to the next level and enhance touch, tone, dynamics, speed, and rudimental vocabulary.

In addition to our wonderful team of local instructors, we are looking forward to Ralph Nader (USA, Blue Devils, BYOS) joining us as featured instructor for the duration of this year’s intensive. We are sure Ralph’s involvement will help take this event to a whole new level and can’t wait to work with him this year!

It is also incredibly exciting to note that a number of previous attendees of the Summer Intensive are now full time performing members of the professional D² Performance Line. Whether you are looking to audition for D² or just spend a week studying and hanging with some of the most experience marching percussionists in the country, the Summer Intensive is for you!
